To John Lyte, An excellent and definitive history exists of the Lytes of Lytescary by H.C.M. Lyte published in the Somerset Arch and Nat Hist Society series.Also an SG member William Fords Hall drew a pedigree of the Lyte family including henry francis lyte.The chart was financed by an American who did the research, and drawn by Mr. Hall, a Lyte descendent.I sent a copy of it to the SG in London for their library.The chart is based on the book Lytes of Lytescary as far as I have looked at the possible sources, so you would probably be safer to read the book.The book is unfortunately very rare in the US, but quite common in England. You would do me a great favor if you could find a rare book by Thomas Baskerville called something like "History of the Baskervyle, Lyte, and Sydney families".If you run accross it xerox it and mail me a copy, as it contains a lot of info on American Lytes of the colonial period.The only copy I know of is in the library of the personal representative of the Lyte family, Mr. B.E.N. Lyte, Caythorpe, Nr. Grantham, Lincolnshire NG32 3DU01400 273001.Mr Lyte has been helping me with identification of some American Lytes and in laws of the 1600's, such as John Sidney of Norfolk Virginia. Several others I am attempting to verify are Eliz Lyte (youngest daughter of Thomas Lyte the genealogist) who married John Seymour, a colonial Governor of Maryland.Also a Baskervyle was the clerk of the York county Virginia court.Baskervyle (the clerk) and Captain William Barber, a "friend" of Major Paul Lyte of Barbados, were apparently in business with George Light, the York county Virginia agent whose father was called John Lyte, Merchant of Bishopsgate, London, according to several York Virginia records.This suggests but does not prove the identity of John Light of Bishopsgate (in 1656-57)to be the same person as "John Lyte, Indigo Merchant of London" the second eldest son (born 1604 at Lytescary) of Thomas Lyte the genealogist, (Pedigree I, 1638, as appears in the book Lytes of Lytescary). You probably don't want to know all that, but someone else on the forum might find it interesting, probably an American Light or Lyte. I research colonial American Lytes. Steve Light (not Lyte).
